A 3 day hike!...yeah ill be choppering in if I ever head here. Love the bigger size btw.
If you plan your transit well, it's actually pretty easy (if expensive) to get into the park. You can fly into Whitehorse and drive, or just fly direct to Dawson city for an extra $500 (worth it if you are traveling alone, since the car rental from Whitehorse to get to Dawson city will cost you about $100 per day). From Dawson, you can take a helicopter into the wilderness. Obviously, if you can get someone to come with you, it's ideal for both safety and cost reasons. It is true back-country out there, and the terrain is quite rugged and uneven. Even though I have some backpacking experience, I would not want to be out there alone with a sprained ankle.
The 3d hike in saves you the helicopter costs, but one can rein in those costs if you can get a group together and split that up. As I said, our group may do a reunion trip a year or two from now.
